Grow. Food. Anywhere. is the must-have guide for anyone who has ever had a desire to grow their own food.

The book has three sections: What Plants Need; Fruit and Veg to Grow; and Pests and Diseases to Know . These chapters cover everything from: why soil matters; composting; how to make a wicking garden; how to select the right growing style; what to plant and when; harvesting; troubleshooting; pruning; and more. Grow. Food. Anywhere. is presented with a combination of photographs, illustrations, and a playful, engaging design that very much mirrors the refreshing no-nonsense approach of the book's two accomplished and articulate young authors, and their thriving gardening business.
